Jon Bon Jovi, Dolly Parton, Meryl Streep, and other big names are set to perform for “A Night Of Covenant House Stars,” a live stream concert benefiting the Covenant House charity.
Hosted by Broadway veteran Audra McDonald and 60 Minutes anchor John Dickerson, the show will air on May 18 at 8:00 p.m. ET on the new streaming service, Broadway On Demand.
Proceeds from the event will go towards providing shelter for the homeless youth as well as increasing resources and staff to care for at-risk kids amid COVID-19. “This virus does not get the last word,” said Covenant House president and CEO Kevin Ryan in a statement. “These stars have stepped up because they recognize that our young people don’t have the option to shelter at home without a home. For thousands of young people, Covenant House is their home. We need more food, more supplies, and we need to continue to provide staffing to care for sick and symptomatic youth.”
“As we’ve said from day one, Broadway’s impact extends far beyond a few blocks in midtown Manhattan. We are proud to partner with the Covenant House on this exciting virtual concert to further their mission and can think of no better way to introduce the world to the type of content they can expect from Broadway on Demand,” added Sean Cercone, Broadway on Demand’s president and CEO.
Other stars scheduled to make an appearance in the virtual concert include Diane Keaton, Stephen Colbert, Rachel Brosnahan, Robin Thicke, and Dionne Warwick.
A Night of Covenant House stars will be streamed on Youtube, iHeartRadio Broadway, Facebook, Twitch, and on the Stars in The House website in addition to Broadway on Demand.
